Betraying Your Home City in EverQuest 2

Not liking the denizens or the scenery where your level 17-or less
character makes his home?  Have friends calling you to join them
on the other side of Norrath?  This guide has what you need
to know to make it happen! (NOTE: spoilers below!)



But first, keep the following in mind:

  1. The betrayal quests are somewhat difficult and style="FONT-STYLE: italic">extremely long. For
    example, you will lose a shard which you cannot recover for 3 days, and its
    possible end up oweing 5 gold to continue the quest if you're not
    careful!  Make sure you have a good reason for betraying before you do
    so, because it's a one-way street; there's no going back once you begin.
  2. Gather everything in your inn room and style="TEXT-DECORATION: underline">relinquish your inn-room before you begin.  If you forget to do so, it's still
    possible to sneak back into your ex-city via the sewers, but when you arrive
    in your former "village" zone you'll have to dodge the roaming guards.
  3. For several of the quest steps, you'll need help from
    the inhabitants in the city you're heading to.  Don't have friends in
    your new home? Seriously consider creating an alternate character in the
    desired city instead of betraying.  You'll likely end up with more bang
    for your playing time, and the friends you make can help to migrate your
    original character later on if you like.
  4. You must begin the betrayal quest before you hit
    level 18.  It's possible to begin the quest at level 10, but you likely
    won't get very far with having to solo lvl 15-16 mobs (the third step of
    either betrayal quest).
  5. You won't be able to level past 17 until the quest is
    completed, subsequently if you begin the quest at 17, you'll likely hit the
    220% experience cap early on and will be wasting a lot of experience. 
    Therefore, its best to begin the quest around level 15.
  6. You will not have bank or wholesaler priviledges until you
    complete the quest, once its begun.

Still a prospective traitor? Let's move on...
